And that is the charm between you and I;

the knowledge that each of us exists 

so brilliantly whole as creatures 

of this heartbeat world.

And then, when we do have each other,

when we are together, 

the edges of the world will glow gentle

and its colours will saturate with the thrill of life

enhanced and amplified, 

but not created; this is the charm.
